This recipe came about because I wanted an excuse to use my beautiful new wooden rolling pin. I’ve wanted to learn to make my own tortillas for a while now, and the recipe I found on Taste of Home is ridiculously simple.
It’s a great weekend lunch, or casual dinner party sharer. The sweetness of the cous cous and dates taste beautiful with cool houmous and a kick of hot sauce.
8 homemade tortillas (recipe from tasteofhome.com)
1 red onion, sliced
125g cous cous
8 dates, chopped finely
About 200g houmous, mine was homemade adapted from my avo houmous
Olive oil to drizzle here and there
Hot sauce of your choice (optional)
- Make the tortillas following the recipe linked in the ingredients list and keep warm. Alternatively, buy some and pop them in the microwave or oven.
- To make the cous cous filling, pour 150ml boiling water over the cous cous in a bowl and leave for 7-10 minutes, then add the dates and stir through with a drizzle of olive oil.
- To build you burrito, first slather the tortilla with houmous (be very generous), then add the cous cous, throw the onions on there and drizzle with a little hot sauce. Fold up and enjoy.
A short post tonight ’cause I’m watching the Glastonbury coverage on TV and weeping with sorrow that I’m not there.. That said, your track recommendation today comes from Elbow, who’s set was – as it always is – fantastic this year.
